(I know that's not a thing, but I never know how to start blog posts, so I'm goin' with it.)
Speaking of the new year though, is everyone sticking to their goals and resolutions? And has the year started off by treating you right?
It's been chilly here, which is not a good thing because I hate the cold and have a low body temperature as it is. I actually had to wear a jacket with my shorts when I went out. Oh the horror! ;-)
I've already made a couple new blogger friends though, which was one of my goals, so that makes me happy. I also finally summoned the courage to request my first book from Netgalley and got approved! That was another thing I wanted to do this year. And my first discussion post went really well thanks to all of you who commented! So I'm off to a good bookish start.
Other than that, I've not got any real news, so I'll just show you what books I've read this week and then you can tell me about your week in the comments!
Books I Finished:
As you can see I’ve also already started on my goal to read more books about different creatures! Well, angels, demons, and mermaids weren’t new or unusual, but I had never read about kelpies, so that was fun, and Chosen was only the second book I’d ever read about djinn. There actually wasn’t a whole lot of djinn-ness in Chosen, but I think there will be more in the next book, and I do plan to continue the series. I also really liked Hell is Coming and reviewed it this week. The Triumph and Turbulence series (the mermaid ones) were enjoyable, but they’re too short for me to justify paying $3.99 each for the next three books.
Song of the Week:
“A Walk Through Hell” by Say Anything – Since there was so much talk of music on the blog this week, it seems like as good a time as any to show you all a song from one of my favorite bands. I love their songs because the singer writes some really powerful lyrics. They’re kind of alternative/punk, but you may have heard their song “Alive With the Glory of Love” that was popular around maybe 2005ish. This song is pretty mild, but you should probably assume all their songs are NSFW just to be safe.
